Following the government's latest guidance on emerging from national lockdown, we are excited to announce that we will be restarting our Family Wild Walks!
Wild Walks – ‘adventures for children to take their adults on’ – are short walks of about 2km (taking about 2 hours), perfect for 3-7 year olds.
As a community, every two weeks, we go on adventures exploring our local green spaces in Hackney and nearby! The aim is to create an environment where children feel they have permission to play outdoors, connect with nature and have fun!
Our next Wild Walks are:
- Sunday 18 April 11am, Finsbury Park Playground
- Sunday 2 May 11am, Clapton Common
- Sunday 16 May 11am, Finsbury Park Playground
We are going CAMPING!

This year we are running Volunteer Weekends at Green Farm Kent for training and preparation for our Family Camping trips over the summer! Our first Volunteer Weekend will be on the 23rd - 24th of April.
There will be training and activities on both Saturday and Sunday, with a shared campfire dinner on the Saturday evening. Sessions will end by 4pm on Sunday, giving you plenty of time to get home. We ask you bring your own snacks and food for breakfast and lunch.

These are some of the podcasts featuring Cath Prisk talking about the importance of children being outdoors at home, at school and every day.
